Scrappy Suckers!

Here are some Halloween lollipops that I'm sending to school with DS on Friday. The tutorial is here, on Red-Eye Stamper. I hope they like them - inside are Yummy Earth organic lollipops. They are free of the top 8 allergens, and are made from organic fruit purees and extracts. Quite delicious!

If you can believe it (you would if you saw my scrap box!), they are made almost entirely of scraps! I did have to cut into a new green sheet and a new purple sheet for the covers, but all the other pieces are from the scrap box. I even threw the remaining bits away (usually I horde the tiniest scraps in case I have to punch a small shape)! Using scraps was Angel's Day 6 challenge. So, another day of Angelosity completed!
The spider is a foam stamp that was RAK'd to me, and the Trick or Treat bag is from Lizzie Anne Designs. Circles and Scalloped circles were made with Nestabilities in the Cuttlebug. Ribbon is from the clearance section of the craft store. I scored a bunch of deals at A.C. Moore last week, shopping their clearance section and using my 25% off total purchase coupons!! Yesterday when I was there, the Martha Stewart Halloween stuff was all 50% off already!
Well, time to go finish laundry and start dinner. I can't believe another weekend is almost over. I hope you've had a good one. Thanks for looking!

GREAT way to use your scraps.... good thinking. I threw away a bunch of too small pieces this weekend as well when I went through my scraps. Enough is enough sometimes. But if it weren't for scraps, I'd spend a lot more money on stamping!

I love when I can use my scraps. I saw on another blog that the gal takes her scraps and uses her punches and nestabilities and always has punched circles and stuff ready to go...but what to do about dp scraps! Anyhow, cute suckers!
